Know the title of a recent humorous book about grammar/language?
A friend recommended a book he recently read that sounds perfect for my dad. He thought is was called "To My Parents, Ayn Rand and God". Although that's a common example in punctuation forums, I don't find any books by that title. As I understand it, the book is a discussion or analysis of the English language and/or grammar.
Any ideas on which book it may be?
Thanks for the quick responses - I had just realized this might be the wrong category and reposted to 'Books' but you jumped right in.
I don't believe it's "Eats, Shoots & Leaves". The book in question was more of a discussion/analysis and I think included more than just punctuation, rather than being a humorous instruction manual.
The book was about English, not about Ayn Rand.
So I don't think we've identified the right book yet.

Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, by Lynn Truss could be the one you're looking for. It's great!

How about "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves"?
